Speaker: Cathy Price, UCL Queen Square Institute of Neurology

Cathy Price is a ground-breaking international leader in our field. Alongside her neuropsychological studies, she was an early pioneer of functional neuroimaging, and was the only woman amongst the first Principal Investigators at the Functional Imaging Laboratory at UCL, when it was founded. She has made numerous notable contributions, including: (a) developing innovative methods and analytics to investigate cognition with fMRI; (b) establishing language-related fMRI as a field; (c) determining the cognitive and neural bases of language across healthy participants and patients.  In addition to her substantial body of internationally recognized contributions to cognitive fMRI, she leads the largest-ever study of post-stroke aphasia (https://www.ucl.ac.uk/ploras/) which continues to generate important new insights about, and prediction of, recovery of language functions in aphasia.

In addition to her cutting-edge research, Professor Price makes many other substantial contributions. She has been the Director of the Wellcome Centre for Human Neuroimaging since 2015. She is a Scientific Advisory Board member for numerous internationally-leading language and neuroimaging research centers. She has been the handling editor for several world-leading journals, served as Secretary for the Organisation of Human Brain Mapping (OHBM), and chaired the nominating committee for SNL. Moreover, professor Price has always promoted the careers of other people. This was formally recognized in the 5th Suffrage award for Life Sciences (2018) and a very high proportion of her past students and postdocs are now world-recognized scientists themselves including Drs. Mummery (UCLH), Gorno-Tempini (UCSF), Phillips (KCL); McCrory (UCL), Mechelli (IoP), and Noppeney (Donders).
